This City Smokes More Weed Than Any Other

Two years ago, the Egyptian author Ahmed Naji was prosecuted for writing about hashish in one of his novels. Although it wasn’t even a prominent theme, he served 10 months of a two-year prison sentence.

Last year, the residents of Cairo smoked 32.59 metric tons of cannabis. As Naji told The Guardian in an interview, “sex and drugs play a very important part in Cairo.”
